Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

Some studies have reported that it is effective even up to 7 years, however this is not something that can be depended upon. Recommended duration as you know is 5 years after which it needs to be removed.

Therefore the answer to your question is that there is definitely a possibility that you can get pregnant.

Take care.
